LibriVox recording of At the Earth's Core, by Edgar Rice Burroughs.
This is the first book in the Pellucidar series. Pellucidar is a fictional Hollow Earth milieu invented by Edgar Rice Burroughs for a series of action adventure stories. The stories initially involve the adventures of mining heir David Innes and his inventor friend Abner Perry after they use an "iron mole" to burrow 500 miles into the earth's crust.

Very good book
David and Perry manage to drill down into the earth's core where they encounter savages, strange animals, strange rituals, and they also learn that humans are not the dominant species in Pellucidar. An excellent book with a very engrossing story line.
Readers were very good. Enjoy!

Fun Book + Great Readers = Win for LibriVox and Listener
I'm always a little hesitant when approaching LibriVox recordings, just because I personally cannot get into a story if the reader and/or the recording quality is below par. And I'm usually leery of multiple readers, since this too can really impinge on my ability to "get lost" in the story. Thankfully, this is ready by only two gentlemen, who have split the novel in half instead of going back and forth. Both readers are great and the sound is perfect. I listened to the whole novel in one sitting while working at my drafting table. And, it's ERB, so it's going to be at least a fun ride...
